    It's the same exact thing with blood donations. Perhaps this FDA ban will be a catalyst to end both discriminatory rules.

    Banning blood donations, sperm donations, it's all absurd.

    But those two commentators are......icon_neutral.gif Uninspiring?

    Yet straight needle-sharing junkies are free to donate their heroin-laden cum all they want to.

    Fucking ridiculous...

    I can see the reason behind relaxing blood donor criteria (since there's always a shortage). Sperm donation...hm, kinda optional (since sperm is rather easily obtained icon_lol.gif ) so being theoretically completely safe would be good. There are reportable cases of HIV transmission in organ donation even with screening, but I'm not sure about the statistics for artificial insemination with donated sperm.

    Still, I disagree with the ban which is discriminatory, since there's no ban for other high risk groups.

    Well there goes all the hot guys with talent, drive and creativity. Dumbing down their choices, and results!

    Kleenex....... the dream catcher. They don't call it 'facial' tissue for nothing.
